Struggling with writer’s block in his mountain retreat, Antonio Banderas gets some creative input from drifter Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, an ex-con who saves him from a potentially bruising encounter with a trucker.
Inviting the stranger to stay and collaborate on a screenplay quickly turns into a Misery-like game of cat and mouse – and then there’s the matter of a series of abductions and murders in the vicinity. Adapted from the French TV thriller Papillon Noir, this suspenseful two-hander has more twists and turns than the road up to Banderas’s cabin, and over the top performances to match the escalating tension.
